Great sale I love Sony and will buy a ps4 when you bring mp3 support and remove the paywall!:)

1.1

Rivals, Tomb Raider and Metal Gear Rising: Revengence have pretty good prices for PS3 :) Probably buying MGR is the fighting as much fun as in Sleeping Dogs? Its melee-heavy right?

1.2

Hopefully we see some more sales this week but this is a great start already for E3 :)

1.3

The paywall will not be removed, it’s pretty much ‘free’ money for them.

Nah, nothing interesting.

2.1

For a 12 year old female wrestler? Or who is on your avatar? Tastes are different gladly there is some great games in this sale for almost everyone (except that 12 year old female wrestler, but even she might enjoy tomb raider for example :) )

2.2

Do not ever insult Phi!

You guys sure that those are the discount prices? It looks like 10£ discounts on the ps4 games. Maybe my browser is glitching or something, because it does not look like discounts to me…

Anyway, Dragon’s Crown is going to to be free today! Finally!

3.1

Remember you can play those psn games on 2 consoles (at least!) :)

3.2

@3.1. You can’t on PS4, at least not without a hassle of giving someone your account credentials, other person giving you his and being always online.

I, to, am mighty disappointed in those sales. ACIV, BF4, NFS:R, LEGO: Marvel – those are all old games. I’ve bought Black Flag for ~ the same price as is now on PS3 sale last November, but than it was still upgradable to PS4. LEGO Marvel – got it for PS4 ~Feb for 50% off. Those discounts are waaay to low. 66% off is what would be appropriate for those games now.

Not to even mention base price is 70 instead of proper 60 euro. No thank you.

Nice! But I still have old prices, without discounts :( (Poland)

4.1

AS EVERY WEEK, it will be updated around evening 5pm or so :-) sometimes a bit earlier. They are just nice & friendly and letting us know of these discounts earlier so we can plan the evening with booze and fun and new cheap games!

4.2

Oh! Thank you BaneyFunny!

5

Nice sale.
I recommend NFS Most Wanted on vita.

5.1

Yes great game!!

JayManGamer 04 June, 2014 @ 11:43
5.2

Agreed! I bought it last time it was on sale even though I already own it on PC, it’s pretty fun. :P

Majik_Meerkat 04 June, 2014 @ 11:59
5.3

A great game, I just traded in my Card so I can get it on PSN. Looking forward to the increase of people on multiplayer

Mortal Kombat 9 (2011) DLC could really use a discount. A little sad to see Octodad reduced so soon. Maybe I should old off on day one PSN purchases now?

6.1

When Octodad was released in US, it had a similar day-one sale, exclusively for PS+. EU Didn’t. When called upon that, the developpers stated that they messed up the day-one PS+ in EU, and that they would make it up ASAP. So, I guess this is it.

7

how come that Battlefield 4 and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag are £19.99 for each on PS3 and £44.99 on PS4

7.1

Because the demand on ps4 is higher, these people even accepted the psn paywall so they are happy to also pay more for games.

7.2

Yup, shameful pricing. I’d have bought AC4 again on PS4 if it was £19.99.

7.3

£44.99 is not a sale price for a PS4 game. I can get a physical copy for that price.

Really disappointed that the AC4 Season Pass is discounted for a second time but still Freedom Cry has not been discounted. As someone who has no interest in the MP the season pass is not much of a deal!

8.1

some people always complain :D and freedom cry was on sale. Not sure if only the standalone or dlc tho. Is there not coming more story dlc for ac4?

Wasn’t Freedom Cry a part of the season pass?

8.3

yes Viryu but he is saying there will only be one story dlc so the season pass isnt worth it as its now the same price as if you only buy the dlc. Not sure if there really is only one story dlc planned for ac4? It should be two.

Might be gettin Persona 4 Golden, at last ;)

9.1

Pretty similar is price for physical release… in Poland it is something like 23 EUR

US had kinda better price:
Persona 4 golden – +14.62$/+19.5$ -> +10.5 EUR/14.3 EUR -> + about 20% VAT -> 12.6 EUR/17 EUR

9.2

not sure why you keep promoting these lies. There is no VAT on psn games, check your bills for purchases. And many games are cheaper in EU in sales, or even new, like beyond two souls was 40 in europe, 60 in US (its now in a sale too but not at psn-launch), if you really care a lot for this you will have two psn accounts (at least) anyways.

9.3

@BaneyFunny

Erm… what are you trying to say? I’m lying about the fact that similar price (a little higher) is in retail shop or am I lying to say that in US they got +14.62$/19.5$ prices?

VAT – Value Added Tax is already included in our price…

About US they don’t have VAT so it means that they should add additional 5-12 % of price…

anyway… you are one of those guys who keep offending others just because they are breaking rules by having 2 accounts, right?

I recommend Thief, really good game and at that price it’s a steal :)

35euro? No, thanks. You can already buy it second hand for 25euro, in perfect condition.

CoolRichy007UK 04 June, 2014 @ 14:36
10.2

ok il buy thief later today and you better be right about it im holding you responcible if i dont like it

10.3

It’s £10.70 on PC from Amazon UK. €35 doesn’t look like a steal to me.

Lower the PS4 price for Black Flag to the equivalent of PS3 price, and you have a deal. No buy otherwise.

11.1

Your loss :) Its a great game especially on ps4.

I’ve already finished it on PS3. It’s just that there are no other interesting games on PS4 so far, that I might rebuy it. But as it is, physical copies are still cheaper than this PSN “sale” for PS4.

UK_Rocklance 05 June, 2014 @ 09:06
11.3

No loss at all. I have the PS3 and PS4 versions. The PS4 version doesn’t look any significantly better. Pretty poor next-gen effort. Essentially they just quickly ported the PC version, I guess.

Are we going to be getting an RPG sale like the USA or is this it? Still waiting for games they had on Golden Week sale *crosses fingers*

Tuulenpoika 04 June, 2014 @ 11:43
12.1

I second this. So many PSP RPGs thaty haven’t been on sale for ages. Lunar Silver Star Story, Riviera and Final Fantasy III, for example.

13

@BaneyFunney What do you mean “remove the paywall”? Make it free?

13.1

He means that you need to buy playstation plus in order to play online.

13.2

There is a PSN online play paywall with plus…

Tho i think some games dont have it, like the campaign online in watch dogs is working without plus? I dont like PLUS because its a commitment from my side to check sony news and blog every other week (and the store) and i dont want that because i love to do breaks from videogaming.

13.3

@BaneyFunny, Not everyone comes to the blog, Their is no obligation to check it every day/week/month or year. If you don’t like the ‘Paywall’ then go over to Xbox . . . Oh wait. Your £40 gets yu 6 new games a month, that’s 72 games per year. If you don’t like it don’t pay for it. I have had plus since day 1 and had no issue with it. I wonder if you could set up an entire infrastructure like that for free? If so show Sony because I am almost certain that, like me, they live in the real world and know services have an applied cost to them.

So Dark Souls 2 discounts by region:

€ = 25%
AU $ = 30%
£ = 12.5%

Really?!!!!

14.1

The deals are bad to begin with. Might as well buy physically.

15

Any chance of octodad being in playstation plus anytime soon? i need new ps4 games but its devastating to buy a game only to have it become free :(

15.1

I’d say probably, especially since we’re getting 2 PS4 games a month now. Still though, it’s a good discount and I bet it’s worth buying.

eoinoreilly24 04 June, 2014 @ 12:14
15.2

Firstly, if you’re literally devastated you need to sort out your priorities, dude. Secondly, the difference is that you own a license for a game you buy digitally while you never actually own the license with plus. Call me crazy, but there are games I have for free with Plus that I would like to be able to buy when they are on sale. When you claim your “free” games with Plus you effectively rent them for an indefinite amount of time, dependent on your continued subscription to the service. I suppose what gives me pause is that I’ve never read the fine print and I don’t know if Sony can just pull the plug on any particular or all the games provided with Plus at any time or not.

15.3

Octodad is very likely to show up on PSplus.

Let’s talk about ”discounts”

Battlefield 4 (ps4) is now €49.99/AU$69.95/£44.99

Battlefield 4 (ps3) is now €29.99/AU$39.95/£19.99

Why the difference in price for the same game (besides greed) ?

Because money. SCEE loves money. They don’t love their PS4 players they much. Sometimes I even think they actually loathe them while they bath in money.

16.2

because demand, and because devopment on ps4 was a bigger risk/more effort. and because people on ps4 love to pay high prices for stuff as with the ps4 and its drm/paywalls. But you can be happy instead you get a sale at all, no ? Surely there will be ones with better prices if this one does not work too good.

@Baneyfunny
Why should I be happy, when the “sale” prices are still much higher than physical copies elsewhere?

Borderlands 2 – now €29.99/AU$12.95/£7.99.

Holy cow? That’s some massive difference a guy from France would pay compared to a guy from London…

17.1

surely an error on the euro-price :) nice find

17.2

looks like it will be 9.99 euros

Any chance of a 10% PS+ discount for the PS4 Assassin’s Creed 4 season pass, like the PS3 one???

Shhhh. SCEE CEO might have a heart attack if he’d have to lower the price any more. You know, money.

18.2

Yes the blog is currently being updated to show that there is a 10% Plus discount for the PS4 version of the season pass

Thanks Chris! Unless there’s a really good “deal of the week” it’s looking like I’ll be getting that later…

StevenJamesHyde 04 June, 2014 @ 11:19

PS4 sale prices are still about £20 too high, especially when you compare them to the PS3 equivalents

Agreed. PS4 “sale” doesn’t feel like a sale at all, when you still can get physical copies much cheaper.

zalwelgoedgaan 04 June, 2014 @ 11:21

Comedy hour again, haha.

PS4
“Need for Speed: Rivals
Was €69.99/AU$99.95/£54.99, now €54.99/AU$54.95/£34.99”

So it’s €5 less than the retail copy. Careful EA, you might go bankrupt!

E A MONEY. They should really rename themselves.

I don’t mean to sound rude, but it’s atrocious that the PS4 sale prices and the PS3 sale prices for games that are, content wise, exactly the same, differ so drastically. I know this is a fault of the publishers rather than SCEE, but I’d rather the games not be included in the sale at all than PS4 players be gouged like this. :/

It does kinda feel insulting for PS4 owners indeed.

21.2

if people on ps4 as desperate for new games always to play ,why give them lower prices when they buy anyways? please take a marketing lessons (some good ones on youtube)

For the last 4 months I’ve been playing FFXIV on PS4, nothing else. And even that I got cheap, because I’ve transfered my account from PS3 to PS4. Let’s face it, EU PSN prices are just the most expensive and silly things around. Not to mention there’s plenty of F2P games on PS4, plus the amazing second hand market, where games are even 50% lower than on these so called “sales.” So why should I buy anything from here? They should just remove the PSN store altogether, it’s really incompetent.

Kingdom of Amalur dlc discount?

KaneTheGoth 04 June, 2014 @ 11:33
22.1

I second this — the game was on Plus about a year ago, would be nice to dig it out again :)

22.2

Would like that too and the psn version of the game for 5 like in us.

23

Erm… no…

First of all… even with sale you can still buy PS4 games cheaper/with equal price in any normal shop… and you get also physical copy of game…. So it is kinda weird for you to call it “discount”

Assasin Creed IV Black Flag -> 200 PLN (48 EUR)
Battlefield 4 -> 215 (52 EUR)
Lego Marbel Super Heroes -> 160 PLN (38 EUR)
Need for Speed: Rivals – 180 PLN (43 EUR)
Thief -> 150 PLN (36 EUR)

About rest of the games… I don’t see anything worth the price…

And Persona 4 Golden once again for 20 EUR?

Let’s compare it to US

Persona 4 golden – +14.62$/+19.5$ -> +10.5 EUR/14.3 EUR -> + about 20% VAT -> 12.6 EUR/17 EUR

All in all… nah… sorry I’m gonna pass once again.

Aye mate. Most of the games mentioned can be bought for 100PLN or less on Allegro. And those are physical copies, which could be sold back.

23.2

@Viryu
Hmm… I was copying just prices from comparing site ceneo… and yet I was avoiding the lowest prices from weird shops…

100 PLN… most of them are used copies… I kinda don’t like used copies. I really really really WANT to support SCEE by buying new games. I have nearly every Sony console (without PS4 because I’m always buying second editions like slim or with extra memory)… I even bought 2 Vitas…

I am really doing everything to support SCEE… and I kinda want for my love to be reciprocated. I want SCEE to harder to make it fair for us! I want SCEE to fight hard to bring all games as physical releases!

I’m fair… I have only account, I didn’t break their rules by creating fake account… and I have nothing from it… those who are cheating are in better position than I am…. and that’s what… I don’t like

Vote with your wallet, start buying second hand copies. Microsoft removed Kinect, because people did that. Do the same with Sony. Otherwise SCEE will never listen to us.

What about the Metal Gear Rising: Revengence dlc? It’s free in the US store for months now

Whoa, whoa, don’t be too demanding now. It’s the SCEA that does the work and loves their players. SCEE is there only take your money. Know the difference.

LendMeYourVoice 04 June, 2014 @ 12:21
24.2

@Viryu Jeez, talk about being whiny. For the whole of last year the EU was getting infinitely better games on PS+ and we’ve had weekly/monthly sales and price drops on tonnes of fantastic games, often the prices being reduced significantly. In fact this is the first sale in a year which I won’t be buying anything from (because the only games I’m interested in, I’ve already bought in previous sales).

SCEE does a great job getting discounts and PS+ titles, stop being so entitled or buy a game someplace else if you really want it.

24.3

@Viryu Are you sure you’re not confusing the two? Most SCEA users are jealous of our PSplus content and sales.

I’d love to buy Outlast…… but the way PS+ is set up it refuses to allow me to :/ and is the reason why I refuse to buy the DLC, if I can’t own the game and its permanently stuck as a rental then I refuse to buy any add ons for it.

I’ve been requesting the ability to buy games that have been downloaded via ps+ for ages (selectable like when you pick which version you want) but it seems no one ever listens, and as such you’ve lost 2 sales (game and DLC)

25.1

Was one of the reasons i ended my PLUS, i rather own my games … You could do a 2nd psn account obviously and buy with those ,dont know if another way is coming…

Dark_Overlord 04 June, 2014 @ 11:55
25.2

I would love to end ps+, shame they practically forced it for the PS4 >:(

As for the 2nd account, I would do, but having a load of credit in my wallet currently makes it annoying that i’ve got to jump through hoops just to buy a game :/

25.3

Get a few yearly subs when they’re on sale, stack em, and pretend like it’s permanent.

Nice discount on Lego Marvel on PS4. Will take that!

The prices on some of this content is laughable even at the sale price. I understand that PS4 content is in demand and you can ask a premium for it but when its not even cheaper than a physical copy that people can sell on to make some money back (Which you or the Devs see none of), surely its in your best interests to offer better sales to get more sales on digital content and stop people from selling games on.

Sorry but €50 is not a sale. €70 release price needs to come down digitally because it’s a complete rip off, u can find a new release for €50 if u shop around and they’re not even on sale. I see it’s $60 for release games in SCEA and €70 in SCEE, should it not be the other way round? At this rate I’m starting to buy all new releases on PC and Xbox except for exclusives so it’s you, Sony who is losing money, your loss really.

Agreed. The very idea of digital sales was supposed to make it cheaper than physical ones. Yet EU is screwed so much. First digital prices are higher than physical copies. Then EU has 60% higher prices for many titles compared to NA PSN. Then sales for PS4 are sales only in name, because the prices go down for a week to the level of NA normal prices.

50€ is a “sale”? No thanks.

Few of these are interesting or of value. It’s a mockery compared to Japan and USA’s network.

terrible prices on most stuff especially ps4 games nothing of interest here. picked lego marvel up yesterday in asda for £20(ps4) and its only 24.85 at amazon, its should of been 19.99

Need for speed for VITA I waiting for price drops some time! €49.99 is too expansive for me but € 8.99 is very good price I finaly buy it! Thanks Sony!

As usual, PAL sales are just terrible. How about we have a sale where the price is lower than retail price?

Whoa, that would actually require SCEE to go lower in price than the NA’s PSN normal price. Sale’s for PS4 should be called: Oh look, we’ve already bought couple Ferrarris, so here, have NA prices as sale, at least until we decide to buy couple more Ferrarris for ourselves.

What are the deals of the week please?

34.1

Jawad’s store blog will give you the details of these later today

34.2

Amusing as you already announced it… Reckon Jawad just grabbed any titles from this post?

35

Good price on persona 4 for those who don’t own it but a few games seem fairly regular in sales. Shame there’s no PSP or PSone on offer. I’d love to see a PSP RPG sale with some that I’ve never seen on offer such as tactics ogre and lunar silver star harmony as RPG sales tend to just have the same games.

36

I might pick up Football Manager for that price, but i can’t help but be disappointed with the PS4 sales items, excluding indies, considering Injustice last week. You would hope that EA could sanction a further decrease on effectively annual titles which are nearing the end of their cycle. Battlefield should have been less since it has DLC to sell, but instead it’s reduced to what PS4 games would cost if the decision to hike up RRP across the board hadn’t taken place. I’m still in the middle of Watch Dogs and probably won’t have time to play another with the world cup but this is a token reduction which is a waste of nearly everyone’s time.

Nothing for me unfortunetely. Some are good deals, some could be better (taking a look at the Injustice deal for PS4 from last week, it was great). Hope that better deals can be acomplished soon on the new platforms.

Other than that — surprised to see DOA5 discounted. The title already has its successor out, which is DOA5: Ultimate. Now that is the one that should be getting the discount, on my opinion, given the old one will not receive more support. Hope that next time you guys can work on it :)

37.1

I really don’t understand this either, how can they put DOA5 on sale when Ultimate is out. The two versions are not even compatible with each other, so anyone that buys DOA5 will be stuck on an old version of the game, unable to play with people that are on DOA5:U.

Why is there no DOA5U sale?

fps_d0minat0r 04 June, 2014 @ 11:53

When are we getting a flash sale?

39

The hidden gem here is Quantum Conundrum for £4. It’s a first-person platform puzzler so it won’t appeal to everybody but definitely worth checking out reviews if you like games that require some thought.

The rest of the sale is unimpressive. The current pricing policy with digital games is just not competitive enough and never has been really for consoles, apart from indie titles of course.

Great!! Now I can afford to replace my card version of Need for Speed: Most Wanted with the PSN version

41

Chris Howe, i know that you are master of ignoring unpleasant questions.
But still…

When Atelier Escha & Logy and Atelier Meruru Plus will be available in Russian PSN?
TK said that all settled long time ago and now everything depends on the PSN.

41.1

@CoolRichy007UK
Ahh… it seems that I shouldn’t have treated you like a rational adult… sorry…

You are a troll right?

42

Chris, any news about the permanent price reduction for Lords of Shadow 2? Konami announced it last week for all versions, both digital and physical, in Europe. However the store is still listing the game at 50€. Is it coming today?

StevenJamesHyde 04 June, 2014 @ 12:29
42.1

There’s a good chance that *is* the price reduction. It dropped from £49.99 to £39.99 in the UK

42.2

Huhhh what? 50€ was the default price.

43

Just making a quick assumption here;

Borderlands 2 – Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2 is the PS3 version and this hasn’t been released for the Vita yet?

Also if I have PS+ and have Borderlands 2 PS3 active on it, is it still possible to buy the discounted price in case I decide to end PS+ in the future?

AirWalkerUK 04 June, 2014 @ 12:03

Pretty poor effort, negligible discounts on some items that can be bought cheaper physically and retail and no flash sale that is currently going on in the US store. Disappointing.

How can you call this SALE?

fps_d0minat0r 04 June, 2014 @ 12:29
45.1

Well technically they didnt… they called them “Pre-E3 discounts”

CoolRichy007UK 04 June, 2014 @ 14:33
45.2

because it is a sale

46

Could we please get some more varied discounts in the future? :/ dont mean to sound ungrateful or anything but it seems most the sales revolve around the same games these days, this is the third time ive seen borderlands 2 and all its dlc on sale in the last 5 months.. plus it seems battlefield and assassins creed are getting new discounts every week

Things i think would make good additions:
Games:
final fantasy
the last of us
L.A noire
poker night at the inventory 2
Diablo 3
Gran turismo 6

DLC:
Kingdoms of amalur
final fantasy
the last of us
ni no kuni
gravity rush

LA Noire, The Last of Us, most of the Final Fantasy games and Gravity Rush DLC have all been on sale in 2014. Possibly more of what you’ve listed but those are what I specifically remember. Also, as far as I’m aware, Ni No Kuni has no paid DLC (and if you meant the full game, that too has been on sale recently).

46.2

la noire had a really good discount not long ago

47

Is the Borderlands 2 DLC on PS3 cross-buy with the Vita version?

LordBeloved 04 June, 2014 @ 12:28
47.1

The PS Vita already includes most of the DLC, so no.

47.2

I have Borderlands 2 Vita, and it’s missing some of the DLC I’m interested in e.g. Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep. I want to know that if I buy DLC for the PS3 version (which I have thanks to PS+) will I be able to download it for the Vita version when Tiny Tina’s Assault etc become available.

Note that at the moment the DLC you get with the Vita version is not compatible with the PS3 version.

> Note that at the moment the DLC you get with the Vita version is not compatible with the PS3 version.

@GothPunk, Thanks for this info. I have been checking around and couldn’t find an answer to whether the Vita DLCs are compatible to PS3.

48

The PS4 discounts just show how overpriced the digital versions of the games are. I know there’a a certain obligation to retailers and I know that the publishers have final say but £45 for games that launched with the system isn’t exactly an appealing price point for publishers or Sony if you want to push people towards digital.

Example: Battlefield 4 is currently available for £37.50, new. I am not saying it needs to undercut, but it needs to be priced competetively.

murgolicious 04 June, 2014 @ 12:13

Discounts? Seriously? The PS4 games are still way overpriced. There’s no way I’ll ever buy games digitally when they’re available at retail for much less, even after these “discounts”.

ok il buy them all then all for me

Most of them are much cheaper in stores… South Park for instance is like 23 euro’s on Zavvi..
I’ll probably only pick up HELL YEAH rabbit shizzle.
